Wife of Kingfisher employee commits suicide

October 04, 2012 18:43 IST

The wife of an employee of crisis-ridden Kingfisher Airlines on Thursday allegedly committed suicide, apparently depressed over financial stress due to non-payment of salary to her husband.

Susmita Chakarvarti, 45, the wife of Manas Chakarvarti, a ground staff in Kingfisher Airlines, was found hanging from the ceiling in her flat in south-west Delhi's Manglapuri at around 1.30 pm.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was declared brought dead.

A suicide note purportedly written by her was recovered from the spot, in which she spoke of being under financial stress due to non-payment of salary to her husband.

"In the note, she said that her husband has not got salary for the past four-five months and that she was unable to cope with the situation," said Additional Commissioner of Police (South-West A K Ojha).

The body has been sent for postmortem.
